About the Haines Borough School District
The Haines Borough School District welcomes students living in the Upper Lynn Canal area to come learn at it's one K-12 school building. Currently, a little over 260 students attend the K-12 school and correspondence school.
The District is guided by the Strategic Plan that states our mission is "To graduate life-long learners with the confidence, skills and knowledge to realize their aspirations and contribute to a changing world."
With just over 20 teachers and several para-professionals, the adult to student ratio allows for every student to be more than a name on the page, but a member of the school community.
The curriculum is updated and integrated in the classroom through technology driven instruction. The District is grateful for the incredible technology program which manages a kindergarten through 3 grade 1 to 1 iPad program and grade 4 through 12 1 to 1 laptop program. The plan for technology includes "evergreening" technology throughout the school including interactive whiteboards, an online independent learning center, and educational interventions school wide.
